Monthly WTF wine group meet up.

Violet, black cherry, bruised plum, and a dark chocolate covered cherry on the nose. Gorgeous aromatics and mouthfeel. Toasted oak, baked mixed berry pie, and clove. Incredibly plush and inviting, so no problem popping these now.

Deep ruby red in appearance. Dark berries on the nose with some cocoa, nutmeg and a little savory. Medium tannins (6/10) and medium plus bodied. Quite dry on the palate with dark cocoa powder, black currants, cassis, gravel and a little tobacco. Long finish. Drink till 2025.

Friday night and I have picked up the 2015 Pahlmeyer Jayson Red Bordeaux Blend. This blend is made up of 83.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9.5% Cabernet Franc, 4% Merlot, 2.5% Malbec and .5% Petit Verdot. Welcome to the weekend!

This is a very aromatic wine with notes of blackberry, black cherry, black currant, violet, black pepper, tar, anise, mocha, smokey oak and sweet earth.

The palate reveals notes of black cherry, blackberry, juicy ripe black plum, black currant, dried herbs, clove, anise, black pepper, chocolate, and crushed gravel.

This is a full bodied fleshy wine with medium + acidity and medium to + soft smooth tannins that leads to a long dense finish. This is ready to pop and poor, ready to drink today. They say it was made to be drunk right away. Well, today starts the weekend and I hope everyone has enjoys every minute of it with relaxation and more wine. Be safe. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷

So rich and flavorful. With a few more years it will get even better.

We brought this and having it open for nearly 6 hours and then decanting it made a huge difference. Last time we had it we decanted it for an hour or so before having it and it was a bit harsh. This pup needs a lot of oxygen.

Decanted for 3 hours. Medium to deep ruby. Nose is coated in dark black and red berries. Pretty well integrated and plush on the palate. A little alcohol on the palate but not over whelming at all. Nice furriness in texture. Lots of dark stewed berries on the palate. Moderate tannins (5.5/10) with a medium plus body. A little alcohol in the light finish too. Might need a little more to blow that off. Drink till 2020.
